Ergonomic software for the brewing industry!

Copa-Data has prepared live demonstrations to prove the advantages of Multi-Touch technology in the industrial environment. The main benefits include intuitive handling, a minimal amount of training and induction, as well as increased operating safety, thanks to two-handed operation and gesture-based login.

Copa-Data is showcasing solutions for ergonomic production at the BrauBeviale, the international beverage industry fair (Nuremberg, 11-13 Nov'14)
BrauBeviale is one of the most important international exhibitions for the beverage industry, featuring raw materials, technologies, logistics and marketing for the production of beer and non-alcoholic drinks.

From the brewing process and line management, to monitoring overall equipment effectiveness and optimising energy supply, COPA-DATA’s industrial automation software is essential for the brewing industry. The zenon Product Family allows beverage manufacturers to gain full visualization, intuitive handling, efficient control and continuous optimisation of complex equipment.

"Competitive pressure, stringent compliance requirements and increasing raw material and energy costs are forcing companies in the beverage industry to react more flexibly and economise more efficiently", explains Emilian Axinia, industry manager for food and beverage at COPA-DATA GmbH. "zenon is the key to continuous and ergonomic production, filling and packaging processes, increased line flexibility, maximum equipment availability and reduced Total Cost of Ownership."

Line management and OEE
Companies that implement zenon for line management can guarantee a continuous information flow – from the machine to the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and back. They can ensure the efficient use of raw materials and equipment, the fulfilment of quality and time standards for all production orders and the reduction of costs in the long term. COPA-DATA’s zenon offers a universal, flexible and open platform that is geared to contribute to an increase of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Management of brewing processes
Breweries that implement the zenon Product Family can fully display, comprehensively monitor and efficiently control their beverage production. zenon’s Batch Control Module allows processes in batch-based production to be optimally controlled, as well as ensuring an unchanging high quality. With Batch Control, brew masters can create and manage master recipes themselves, which then serve as templates - or so-called control recipes - used in beverage production.

Energy management
zenon allows companies from the beverage industry to set up a comprehensive solution for energy management. The software records and clearly presents energy consumption, the use of resources and the production data. It also identifies the possibilities for optimising energy efficiency and saving potential. The software thereby meets important criteria set out by the international energy standard ISO 50001. The certification body of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH confirmed that zenon meets the defined requirements of the Certified Energy Data Management standard.
